Happy Mother's Day!

  I know it isn't May yet, but it will be soon!  And May means Mother's Day and cards!  So I chose to make a simple Mother's Day card for your inspiration.  

I used Technique Junkies stamps Watercolor Flowers - 
http://techniquejunkies.com/watercolor-flowers/, and Technique Junkies Happy Mother's Day - 

I inked up the entire flower panel with a light green ink.  Then I used hot pink, fuchsia, and yellow dye-based markers  to add random color all over the flower parts of the image. I spritzed the stamp with water and applied pressure to the paper on the stamp.  I spritzed the stamp again and reapplied the card stock in a slightly different spot.  I was not trying to stamp again in the same place but in a slightly off-set manner.  Then I heat set it.  I spritzed with gold and pearl glimmer spray.  I heat set it.  I added dots of color from the Nuvo Glitter markers, and layered it on glitter paper, added the the greeting which was heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I sponged blue ink in the background.

The fringe yarn was added as an embellishment.

I hope this has inspired you for your own other's Day cards.
